She contributes to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine’s Homeschooling with Heart blog and writes monthly book briefs for Accelerate Books.

Why I Write

I write primarily to honor and glorify God. Nothing else approaches in importance. Secondly, I write to inspire. If my writing has not touched the hearts and lives of my readers, I have not done my job.

Work in Progress: Midnight at the Fountain of Joy
Stories come and go with the tide. One washed up on the rocks, muddied and tangled in debris, crying out for a mother now absent. Her only companion, a curious creature with dark brown and black guard hairs and a resolute look in its black beady eyes. It was a story twenty-years-old, but the sea carried on it a reminder, a sorrowful whisper so that no one would ever forget. And no one had.
